of responsibility includes yemen. i think that's a strong signal nat united states will bomb through on what president obama has said, which he's going to hold people to account. i think that is a not very subtly coded way of saying there will be retribution and it will be military retribution. and we've already seen strikes on december 17th and december 24th at al qaeda targets in yemen. but i imagine there's going to be more of those strikes and i don't think general petraeus was bringing a thank you mote to the president of yemen for your help on the war in the terror, i think he was bringing more of an ultimatum which is to say if that plane that had blown up, 300 mostly americans would be dead. and this is coming from your territory. and if you can't control your own territory, we can help you, we're already giving aid, we can increase that aid, but we also, you know, this poses a major threat to the united states and we can do this with you or without you. and i think that's what the you been stance of the conversation was. i can't imagine that he would have said anything else given wh

to the president of the united states because he said that he was light skinned, and i am quoting, lacked a negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one. he is not denying he said them, but is apologizing them. >> we are asking for your comments on that so be sure and send them in to us. >> we have a second to share just a couple. i will just read it. it's right from here. i will read this from norma johnson. she says i am african-american and i think what harry reid said is absolutely correct. we just don't want to discuss it in public. another distraction from the real issues facing the country including lack of good health care, the president accepted his apology, so let's move on. >> people agree with what harry reid said, but just know that it's uncomfortable for what people to hear sometimes. >> so what? good is the benchmark. a lot of people are saying while unfortunate and a lot of people saying they disagree, and some were saying these were honest comments and observations. >> and race is such a hot button topic, and amazing just some of the comments we are reading and amazing it's coming
